Watson aims for British top spot

Heather Watson
Watson believes she can reach the British women's top spot

Guernsey tennis star Heather Watson has set her sights on reaching the British senior women's number one spot.

The 17-year-old had her first senior tournament win, in Frinton in July, and aims to improve her world ranking after entering the senior rankings at 775.

"I know I can make it to the top. It's just down to me now, I need to keep working and improving and becoming more consistent," she told BBC Guernsey.

"I'm going to work hard and make sure I don't regret anything in life."

Watson added: "[I] just want to get better so I can beat those people that I've lost to in the past."

"Anything is possible, I can do it [reach the number one spot], I just need to keep climbing that ladder."

Watson believes she has a different personality on and off the court.

"You've got to kind of have two personalities," she said. "Be a nice person but also be a competitive person who doesn't want to give anything away."
